Trump’s administration is considering cutting $1.3 trillion from the federal budget and raising taxes in the coming year to try to save the government and stop a government shutdown.
The proposal would slash funding to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Medicare Advantage, the State and Local Governments, the Education Department, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institutes of Health by $1 trillion, The Hill reported.
Trump wants to slash the budgets of the departments for Education, Energy, Labor and Health and Human Services by $3.5 trillion.
He is also proposing to eliminate $1,000 for every $1 of tax revenue generated by businesses and individuals to fund the government.
The Trump administration is also considering ending the National Park Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Weather Service, and the Environmental Defense Fund.
“We are proposing to reduce spending for programs that serve the public and which are critical to our country,” a White House official told The Hill on Wednesday.
“We are reducing spending on many programs that are vital to our national security, including homeland security, our military, and our economic growth.”
Trump has proposed eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
“The President believes that the nation’s museums and historic sites should be preserved and protected and not taken over by government,” the White House said.
The Hill reported that the Trump plan would include a “pay freeze” on government workers and contractors.
The cuts would come after the Trump White House was accused of cutting $500 million in funding for the Environmental Protect Agency.
